A loan helped to purchase cheese.

Sandra Katiuska's story

Sandra, 25, is married with two children, ages 6 and 2. Her husband is a merchant, and they live in a relative’s house in Manta, one of the most important cities for business and tourism on the Ecuadorian coast.

Sandra is a woman who, before the adversities we are going through, continued moving forward for her family’s well-being. For this reason, five years ago she engaged in buying and selling cheese. With her husband’s help, she sold her cheese on foot. However, due to the sanitary measures imposed by the government and the fear of contagion, she decided to conduct her sales online, and she only delivers upon customer request. This has been very difficult for her because her sales are not the same as before. However, she continues moving forward because this is the way she knows how to make a living.

She will use this loan to purchase cheese. Her dream is that this pandemic will end soon, and life will return to normal.
